Forum: GratefulDead Subject: What about Deadhook?

This is not a NEGATIVE post, or a "site wars" post, but just a question...what about it?

As in, it doesn't seem that those that 'made the move' (myself included) are 'there' rather than 'here' now...

Thoughts?

I will offer my own shortly...not that it matters, or that Ashes will make a mockery of it with a subject line that is longer than this post (sorta 'Liam esque'), and trust me, that is coming from someone that loves Ashes...and before it was popular.

Ok, I'm on the reverse side of this coin. I am a "Deadhooker" who visits, and occasionally posts here. But, I thought I'd kick in my $.02 anyway.

The two sites have much in common. At either you can find a veritable encyclopedic knowledge of all things Grateful Dead. With said knowledge comes listening recommendations for "the best of the best" in live concert recordings..

Then there are the people. Both sites are home to some really good people. It does seem that those here are a little more serious about the subject matter...we never label a thread "non-Dead" at Deadhook. As far as being "cliquish" goes, both sites are equally guilty. As Dire said, "...just the same as real life". I'm not so sure the "clique" is the proper term though. Long-term friendships forged at one's "home site" may sometimes take precedent over "meeting new friends", but new friendships happen. Immdeiate acceptance is not necessarily a trait of either site. And there are, shall we say, "contentious" individuals at both sites.

I hope no one here was made to "feel like a stranger" at Deadhook, and I don't know of anyone from Deadhook that was made to feel that way here. If you were made to feel as if you needed to "prove yourself" at Deadhook, I "feel ya' playa" and apologize. That isn't a feeling I would want to subject anyone to. But, if you feel that Deadhook is sometimes a little too "warm and fuzzy", I understand that as well.

Though I have found acceptance, and a few feindships, here this post is overly ling . It is now time for me to click my heels three times and repeat "There is no place like home. There is no place like home."

I guess that was around the same time I saw him. Security tour? Biggest highlight was when he fell backwards onto the audience and got passed around in a big semi-circle in front of the stage during Lay Your Hands On Me. Maybe the gutsiest thing I ever watched a performer do---and one of the all-time standout non-Dead shows I ever saw.

The only time I ever got to speak with Jerry was at the Gabriel show at Oakland Coliseum shortly before the "comeback" shows from the coma in '86. (other than giving him good natured shit at the Stone at a couple of shows - along with everyone else.) He and Bill Graham were sitting together and just wished him all the best, looking forward to the shows, etc. He gave me that nitrous sounding voice and impish grin - great moment (and Jer was big Gabriel fan - lots of comments over the years by him about respect for Gabriel and that era Genesis).

By and large everyone there has been friendly with arms wide open. There was one notorious post from "stevebo" (?) which basically told Dancinbears that he wished all of her LMA buddies would crawl back into the hole from which they came. I guess my skin has thickened a bit from being here: I refused to take the bait, posting a reply that said he need not worry because we're all pretty harmless. I can't say that it didn't at least sting a little bit, though. Big WTF, know what I mean? And I got a very weird vibe from one dude whose screen name is the same as a very prominent member of the St. Louis Cardinals---a private message exchange (I'm a big Cardinal fan, so I thought I'd reach out) wound up with him making a comment that I'm working in a "dying industry." Gee whiz, thanks a lot. I'll make sure to tell my daughter that Daddy could get downsized at any moment.

Hey UU--really appreciate that you and huntr did chime in. It was really a relatively innocent question given that the handful of us that started posting at hook didn't seem to 'leave' and thus I was just curious what folks thought.

I think that it is not so much the subtle differences in the sites as perhaps the friends we made here (sounds corny, maybe frightening, but that is the easiest descriptor for it). So, folks went there, found it wasn't the same, and at least as far as I can tell, didn't decide to give up on this place and 'move.'

The idea of this place being home does seem strange, and almost absurd, but for me, it was the interactions off site that cemented that feeling for me. No doubt that same kind of thing happens at hook, from the nature of the posts I read there, but I suppose I only had enough energy for one site, if you follow me...I couldn't imagine doing this for more than two.

Anyhow, thanks.

"I am so sick of all the shit from GoP and other, i just couldnt take it anymore - from either site."

Why the sudden problem with me? because I got pissed off an ranted like you do? Because I post over there about experiences and songs I like knowing I won't be immediately hijacked?

I think, Don that considering our recent emails, that you would not chose to make me the poster boy for whatever troubles you.

As to cliques, your newbie rants make it seem as if those who have not posted since 2004 are outsiders. Cliques? Those of you who email in private have formed cliques. NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. But, ultimately, this place is a clique--we are who we are and they are who they are. So what?

As to the other side, they are interested in what I have to say, respond on topic, and are very, very forgiving of miscues and bad judgment.

So what is the shit, Don, up with which you choose not to put? And, again, why am I your poster child?

Maybe your admission is the shoe that fits. Maybe that is why I don't post here anymore.

All I know is that it saddens me to hear what you have to say.

Bill

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: What about Deadhook?

Discounting websites like my browsers homepage, ISP page, band sites, various game sites and reading my daily comics

I go to at least 3 message boards daily and make a nuisance of myself
I visit another 5 or 6 intermittently
There are 8 torrent sites I check daily, 5 of them I post at or comment on a fairly regular basis

I have been parked in a IRC server in a private channel 24/7 for the better part of 10 years

I will kick your ass in Q3A (my preference is for instagib rail servers) which I keep installed just in case some poser gets lippy.
I have also spent countless hours playing Starcraft, Diablow and various other online PC games

I also play Runescape, a free or by membership online multiplayer role playing game that works out of the browser and have been for something like 4 or 5 years...

All that in addition to the hundreds of links and other websites that end up in the browser each and every day....

this concept of here .. there.. leaving .. staying .. home .. visiting ...... meh

I find it difficult to wrap my head around really... Its meaningless

not a day goes by that I spend the same amount of time on a given site as I did the day before... not that I'm timing it or anything

for me the only constant is IRC (Internet Relay Chat.. by the way).. and you cant go there in a Browser...

Whoa...no wonder I don't know what I am doing.

Maybe that is part of it...old site for old farts. What's comfortable, etc.

But, and I am just curious here, don't you still find that the web experiences mirror 'real life' interactions (thus, you graviate toward those you have more in common with, etc., etc.)?

Perhaps not--given your response, but for me, those interactions are really the reason I come around. I picked up the basics on a techno level, early on, and that was huge, but the personal interactions (ie, off site) are what brought me around in a big way. That happened really quickly here (ie, music sharing), but not there (hook)...no problem, just different. And no doubt, 'my fault.'

I'll have to re-read your post cause I didn't follow half of it (again, my problem).

Thanks, huntr--I appreciated your input here and there.

"Maybe that is part of it...old site for old farts. What's comfortable, etc."

I am most comfortable in "real time" as it were
IRC predates message boards AFAIK.. it was around then the WWW was in its primal stages ..hardcore geeks at unix and linux boxes chattering to each other about their 8bit machines and such
I didn't get into it till well after Windows and mac clients started appearing (much to the geeks displeasure from what I'm told)

_______________________________________________________________

"But, and I am just curious here, don't you still find that the web experiences mirror 'real life' interactions"


In a very general way..
I have no preference for one clique of posters on a site over another as it were..
No single message board Ive ever been to has served all my needs
Ive always preferred the immediacy of IRC .. being "present" with a person in real time..
although I have had exchanges in IRC where it took a few days to get through a conversation cause the "posts" were 14 hours apart too
To me the people I associate with in IRC are more "real" in a sense than anyone I interact with on any message board if thats what you mean

---------------------
"(thus, you graviate toward those you have more in common with, etc., etc.)?"

Nobody likes to hang out in a environment that they find unpleasant & unrewarding.
I don't go to the dead boards to talk about Howard Stern.. I don't talk much dead there

I don't interact with anyone off any site .. Thats why I go to the site in the first place
other than doing the odd reasonable B&P or sending out freebies and such... thats as personal as I ever get
I never post in vibe threads or any of that sort of thing... excepting the rare birthday thread I guess
not that I think Ill of them or dislike the people or anything .. I just don't participate on that level
Most of the music I give away is to friends and strangers in "the real world"

Very cool; thanks huntr. I think I now see what in large measure brings me enjoyment here--hoping it won't sound odd--and it's just the writing. Yes, as you note, their is a lag, but here, in general, we can have consistent dialogues, and writing, I find in my old age especially, is good therapy. Every week or so I am forced to defend (in a good way) a position, even a trivial one, and that helps refine and expand a person's perspective. The folks here, just by historical accident, that I have hooked up with most consistently, are about my age, with my interests and perhaps more importantly, with similar doeses of sadness and growth regarding personal loss and the like. Lots to connect with...

Thanks for all the feedback and explanation.

Hello William Tell and your damn bow-and-arrow: (which reminds me, does anybody remember the bar in Harvard Square called the "Bow and Arrow?" Is it still there? I used to bring my purebred German Shepherd there for a mid-afternoon pint of a "Black-and-Tan." Though of German descent, a pint of a "Black-and-Tan" fit perfecdtly with her coat (pelt?) "Nicodemus": may she rest in peace [Nov. 23, 1996 - June 10, 2007]

Like a dog, I am just plain too damn stupid to leave my master's side. I have seen Deadhook and even signed-up there late last year. Honestly, it is a beautiful site -- I had my suspicions and dropped that horrendous post on dancinbears head last December prior to even looking at the site. Then I took a look at it and was blown away at both the wealth of material there as well the ease of being able to navigate the site [unlike DeadNetCentral where I've been known to get lost for hours... and never finding what I was looking for -- just like my cab-driving days in Boston -- always lost.]

One of my deals is that my roots in this Forum go so deep that I am actually overwhelmed trying to keep up with responding to emails as well as burnin' discs (my one true vocation in life nowadays). It is impossible for me to partake in the Deadhook experience 'cuz I know I would eventually get overwhelmed by making promises that I couldn't possibly fulfill and sink myself into being too stressed-out. Deadhook appears to be filled with a lot of kind individuals -- just take a glance at their "B&P Forum" and the jewels that are distributed and that is all you need to know. "Pure & Perfect." [Look at the video "B&P" the dude called "crazyfingers" did on Aug. 7th --- as I said, "Pure & Perfect." -- And I think it is a safe guess to say that the timing of his/her offer, Aug. 7th, wasn't just a "coincidence." Very cool.]

I gotta stop writing now...I apologize for how long this post is, however I felt compelled to respond since I wanted to make sure people realize their is a difference between the site itself and whatever issue(s) I may have had with individual(s) from Deadhook. Does any of this make sense? [I got rattled real bad around midnight last night and I still haven't fully been able to calm down internally -- I really do apologize for the length of this post.... forgive me for posting it and not just deleting it but I wanted to respond and I figure people wouldn't mind the story about "Nico" who departed three months ago.]

Do yourself a favor and check out that "B&P Forum" at Deadhook:
http://www.deadhookforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=10

I'm sure there is something there for everybody --- and that's why I refer to all of us as "the Chosen Ones."

Dick's Pick 13 is 5/6/81 which is one of my favorites (5/6 is my birthday so I was pretty hyped about seeing them). I have the glassberg from the forum and love it and was wondering how the Dick's Pick's version compared. Haven't gotten around to purchasing it yet - with four growing kids purchasing anything aside from food and clothes is a bit of a luxury. P.S. my lyme friend is coming out for a visit tomorrow so we can sail my catboat out to Sayville and race it in the annual catboat race - I been after him all summer to get out of Brooklyn and visit Babylon where the air quality is a little better - I even dusted off the pullout

HIGH TIME

You told me goodbye
How was I to know?
You didn't mean goodbye
You meant please
don't let me go
I was having a high time
living the good life
Well I know

The wheels are muddy
Got a ton of Hay
Now listen here baby
'cause I mean what I say
I'm having a hard time
living the good life
Well I know

I was losing time
I had nothing to do
No one to fight
I came to you
Wheels broke down
The leader won't draw
The line is busted
the last one I saw

Tomorrow come trouble
Tomorrow come pain
Now don't think too hard, baby
'cause you know what I'm saying
I could show you a high time
living the good life
Don't be that way

Nothing's for certain
It could always go wrong
Come in when it's raining
Go on out when it's gone
We could have us a high time
living the good life
Well I know

Hey--don't ever apologize for writing too much. At least not to me.

A good black and tan, to drink or on a walk, is damn fine. I always associated the description with a dog as well--my old man loved shepards, and from the 50s on we always had one. Usually a 'police dog' reject of sorts, and had more than one named 'sheba.' Great dogs.

Had quite a few of the liquid variety this past summer in Ireland, though there the image of the original Black and Tans can be disconcerting. At least to those from southwest Ireland I suppose. But, drinking is as good a way as any to put the past behind us, so better a pint than a peeler, eh?

Well, we all have a friend or two or more over there who also share in what's going on here, so I check in with those guys a bit. But I haven't been especially hooked by Hook, if you know what I mean.

Can you say "feel like a stranger"?

I knew you could.

It would be nice, though, if maybe just some of those advanced text options were available here. It can make a lot of difference in how accurately you're able to express yourself if italics or underlining or boldface are available.

And I do have fun with the smilies.

"But I haven't been especially hooked by Hook, if you know what I mean.

Can you say "feel like a stranger"? "




Im right with you brother - great place, but.......


edit -i guess they have their "cliques" there just like we do here - ive been there a bit and still havent been accepted =- oh well

just like high school - friendliest place on the internet....... as long as you are in the "click"

typical stuff - im not being judgemental - just the same as real life

not that i wont post there, but it just aint "here" - there is no place like home my friend

You haven't posted very much, and there was a very nice thread welcoming you there. And you were welcomed as if they looked forward to your stopping by (as they should!). You might try participating before criticizing. That is not to say or imply anything about you.

Cliques = long time members who are more familiar with one another. Just as you and SDH and Tell and others do her. You know more stuff about each other, have personal ties, and are more at ease. That's not a clique--if it were, you wouldn't respond to new posters, and more recent folks would feel left out.

No cliques here--just old friends. No snobbery. Head butting, but no condescension. Okay, maybe a little.

No cliques there either. Just emoticons!!!

If you really are here for the band, then both places have much to offer.

But it is like going to another club after having been a member of this one for so long. It's going to be different.

I kinda wish I disagreed with what you're saying, but you're pretty much nailing the way I feel, too.

Yep, Bryan...well said. I am glad folks didn't take this the wrong way...and no one did.

The reason I know this place is home is Ashes.

And Arbuthnot. And McGlone.

They do it for me.

No doubt there are 'equivalent' individuals in that other world, but these that I knew here first will remain forever in my mind as the kinds souls that turned me on to the music.

That is all. But it means something. And, most important, and no knock on DEADHOOK by this:

"your friends, baby, they treat you like a guest!"

someone posted about this a few weeks ago and since I was not familiar with it I asked about the upside. There was no real response so I never checked it out. Honestly, no reason for me to get involved. Very little time as it is.

Ain't that the truth--proves I have too much of it...old and home bound, senile and debilitated, turning up the music and my hearing aid. But, this place is all I ever really needed.

the other thing is since this is the first place I went I already know the good reviewers in the download/streaming section not to mention the forumites who have great recomendations. makes it easy to cut to the chase

It all looks the same upside down to me Shirley. Usually the best things come in 2's, namely the left one and the right one.
